After you filed for your unemployment compensation, you should start filing for your weekly claims. Do not forget that you should file each week while you are waiting for a decision about your benefits, waiting for your claim to be valid or even while you appeal for a denied benefits. You could file for weekly claims from any of the fifty US states, District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands and Canada. This is because you have to be available to be in person at your unemployment office when asked to go.

You can file your weekly claims on the phone or online and also acquire information about your claim. When filing through the phone, there is a series of questions you have to answer. Make certain to get ‘your claim has been accepted’ message after you have answered all the questions. This is vital because if you hang up or disconnect before you get the message, your claim may not be accepted and you have to do it all over again.

Your weekly claims may be filed beginning Sunday 12:01 AM to 5 PM of the last working day of each, Friday usually unless if there is a holiday.  You will not be able to claim your weekly benefit until the week ends. All weeks end at midnight on Saturday and Sunday is the first day that you may file for the week.
